flexiscreens insect screens are either an indoor or outdoor fly, bug, midge & mosquito mesh screens. They are the great alternative to rigid and difficult to use insect screen that break and bend. They are held onto the window frame by a strip of 13mm (.5″) “self-adhesive” VELCRO® hook tape. This hook tape runs continuously around the window frame, it is self-adhesive and will adhere to virtually any clean dry, sound surface. Raw porous surfaces must be avoided unless sealed. More information here. The loop of the VELCRO® (the fluffy part) is double stitched to the fly screen mesh along with a trim tape to match your frame.

- To relocate your flexible screen to another frame The Velcro Company recommend a product called Un-Du available from your local hardware store. Brush the product onto the self adhesive hook on the frame, allow to penetrate, and remove in one easy step. Clean up with WD-40 or a citrus based cleaner. You can order more tape from us if you wish to re use this fly screen again in another location. Removal of hook using this method won’t damage the surface of your frame. We don’t recommend that you tug at the hook on your frame, firstly it won’t come away easily and secondly it could remove layers of paint and damage your frame.
Flexible Insect Screen Warranty
- Our customers choose us for a high quality insect screen, value and great customer service.
- Our bug screens are guaranteed to be free from defects in material and workmanship for twelve months. All materials have been carefully selected to provide maximum durability for your insect screen.
- Unfortunately the warranty does not cover accidental cuts made by sharp objects and the like, the mesh does not spontaneously tear.
- The fibreglass mesh will not corrode like aluminium. Our fibreglass mesh is streets ahead of what some manufacturers use which results in a better looking tougher end product.
- Ideal application temp. for the Velcro brand fastener is above 18c. Performance of the adhesive is not guaranteed – because the use of this product is beyond our control, no warranty expressed or implied can be given for the results obtained. The adhesive used in this VELCRO brand fastener is a high performer when handled correctly (installation instruction supplied with each insect screen purchased)
- All screens are manufactured to the exact measurements that you supply – we add 13mm (.5inch) to each side of your screen unless you indicate otherwise. We regret we cannot provide refunds for incorrect measurements, however we can re-size if you have over measured for your insect screen, there is a minimal charge for this service.
- Folds in your new insect screens will fall out within 24 hours so no need to worry.
